I received many questions this morning in the Library’s email box about writing and the APA format. Besides the APA Publication Manual, the first resource I think of for these questions is Capella’s Online Writing Center.
Here is the path through iGuide: Academic > Academic Support Resources > Online Writing Center, now you can see where I came up with the title of this article.
I also point out this resource when I am talking to someone on the phone. They are often pleasantly surprised at the amount of and quality of information the site contains.
I want to highlight two sections for you to bookmark or add to your favorites:
Need some help “distilling” the APA Publication Manual? Check out the recently revised APA Style and Formating interactive module.
Need some help with an Annotated Outline, Writing in the Third Person, or Writing a Course Paper? Check out the many helpful handouts/modules on the Writing Center’s Handouts & Modules page.
I have reviewed and used several of these modules and handouts for my own writing and have found them very “user-friendly” and helpful.
Let me know what you think about these resources, did you find anything surprising?
